Today’s New Testament reflection: Matthew 21:1-22

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King – Matthew 21:1-11 | approached Jerusalem – Jesus sent 2 disciples to get a donkey for Him to ride into the city, this fulfilled Zechariah 9:9. He received a Kings welcome Psalm 118:25-26.

Jesus Curses a Fig Tree – Matthew 21:18-22 | in the morning Jesus was on His way back to Jerusalem and He was hungry. He went up to eat from a fig tree but it had no fruit! Jesus cursed it – never bear fruit again! Immediately the tree withered and DIED! – LOL! Why does this sound like Jesus had a bit of a fit?! The disciples were amazed and asked Him how it died so fast??? Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” – WOW! Faith minus doubt, plus belief equals receipt.Take that into your life today!

I am a daughter of God, a servant of the Lord, a wife to a patient husband, and a mama of two forgiving boys. God has placed these three men in my life needfully so. I thank Him for them everyday. And like so many of the Lord’s children, I am a work-of-glory-in-progress. I am on a journey to reclaim and renew my life in Christ. It took me 34 years to learn that when nothing else works, God does!
